15th Oak is the Dublin-based theatre partnership of writer Ross Dungan and producer Robert Kearns. Right now, they are in the process of putting together their new show 'The Life and Sort of Death of Eric Argyle', which will run at the Edinburgh Fringe and Dublin Fringe in August and September of this year respectively. (Edinburgh Fringe dates: 1st to 27th August (not the 13th), Dublin Fringe dates: 10th to 15th September)
The show is the company's second production, following their huge success in 2011 with their Edinburgh Fringe First winning show 'Minute After Midday' which received critical acclaim during performances in Edinburgh, Dublin, Belfast and Glasgow. (**** from The Scotsman, Irish Theatre Magazine, Whatsonstage.com, The List, The Times, Le Cool, Metro Herald, Belfast Telegraph, and The Herald - that's the Scottish one)
The new show (TLaSoDoEA) is a tragicomedy, which looks at the life and death of a man called Eric Argyle - a man who has just died and is being forced to look back on precise moments of his life which may have been vital turning points for him. We hope to make a genuinely beautiful show, which charms, entertains, and touches people. As such, we have recruited a cast of 8 fantastic actors, and a team of 6 to help to build something special.
To travel with a show this large, and to run it at the Absolut Fringe, we need very deep pockets. While we've already invested the bulk of €10,000 into the show, we realistically need more to cover the costs of accommodating performers, marketing the show, and building and transporting sets. This fundraising campaign aims to cover these costs.
In return for your support, you will receive anything from our deepest gratitude, through to getting to be present at an exciting preview performance of the show at the end of July and right up to an all-expenses paid trip to see our group perform the show abroad.
Any and all support would be hugely appreciated.
